[Verse 1] True love is dead, / Someone has said; / But love can never die / For God above / is fountain of love, / Shall such a fount e’er dry / Every true story of Love begun, / Every heart under a true love won, / Shall finish it’s [sic] chapter where God is the sun / True love can never die. [Chorus] Roses will fade and perish / Children cease in play; / Strong hands grow weak and weary, / Cities will pass away / Stars will fall from the heavens, / And the moon hang dark in the sky; / But through [sic] the planets fade dear, / True love can never die. [Verse 2] Long years ago, / pure as the snow, / Lived a sweet village maid / Once on a day / Love came her way / But for a month love stayed / And then she died in the month of flowers, / Rang out this music through summer bowers; / sung by her lover, with face to the sky / True love can never die.
